bay area grocery store is changing that. it's a trend that could be spreading across the country. reporter: the search for the perfect wine is changing. >> so the french wines are here. which one are you looking for. reporter: you can see just how much in the aisles of the local grocery stores. >> because we are in napa valley, we expect more out here. reporter: they are getting more, a lot more in both numbers and variety. >> typical store will have somewhere between 1500 and 2,000 items. in the store we have 2500 give wines you can buy. there's a bunch of wines on the shelf that you would never see in a grocery store or let's say in the past you've never seen in the grocery stores. the intention is to deliver the world of wine inside of a grocery store. reporter: this is a new approach by the chain to meet the growing demands and budgets of the wine consumer.
5:57 pm
so instead of a wine aisle, this is a wine shop complete with wine steward. >> for a long time, it has been stocking and just put wines on the shelfes and bented customers to buy them. now we are trying to deliver the experience. reporter: which includes a lot of wine education and wine tastings in the deli. >> there is quite a difference in the wine from different areas of california. so central coast -- reporter: that's where the he had case comes? >> absolutely. reporter: it seems to be working. 25 stores now have wine tasting licenses with 10 to 15 more expected by the end of the year. they boast beer and wine gardens. still, it's been challenging with some higher end wines not sure they wanted to be on this shelf. >> so i get resistance sometimes initially people say we don't want to sell our wines in your store, you're a grocery store and then i generally take them to one of our stores and say look at our store. it's -- this is upscale. reporter: traditional wine
5:58 pm
shops may not be so thrilled by the new competition although curtis insists getting more people to understand and appreciate wine is good for the entire industry. >> a little bit harder. reporter: and success here could lead to changes in the aisles of drove radio stores across the country. >> it's happening not just here but we happen to be probably two, three years ahead everyone else. reporter: in napa, ktvu fox 2 news. fox 2 news at 6:00 starts now. good evening. we begin with a speed bump in bart's plans to ex tanned service to the south bay. the opening of the warm springs station is being pushed back. even though most of the work is complete. it's the testing phase that could send the project off track. reporter: the count down is on for the nearly five national mile addition of the bart line
5:59 pm
to warm springs. sky fox is overhead. the $890 million expansion project. as we can see from on the air and ground, construction is pretty much done. one of the highlights, this tunnel that will run underneath lake elizabeth. 94% of the contract is said to be complete. while it's on track with budget, bart won't make the expected finish date. >> it's hard to know when you'll open. you can be on time with building is. it's just if you hit a snag or the testing is taking a little bit longer, things aren't talking to each other like they're supposed to and you have to troubleshoot it, then you have a little bit of a delay, which is what we're in now. reporter: she says what you don't see is the critical testing phase, something that's hard to predict how it will go given officials must conduct thousands of tests from the automatic train control, communications, to the power systems. right now they're testing with dummy trains, then actual bart trains will be brought in.
